The Mole and His Mother

錢鼠與的母親

 

A mole, a creature blind from birth, once said to his mother: "I am sure that I can see, mother!"

錢鼠是天生的瞎子。有一次一隻錢鼠對母親說:「媽!我確定我能夠看見!」

 

In the desire to prove to him his mistake, his mother placed before him a few grains of frankincense, and asked, "What is it?'

為了證明的錯誤,母親便放了幾粒乳香在小錢鼠的面前,問說:「這是什麼?」

 

The young mole said, "It is a pebble."

小錢鼠說:「一粒小卵石。」

 

His mother exclaimed: "My son, I am afraid that you are not only blind, but that you have lost your sense of smell."  

母親驚叫到:「孩子!你不只是瞎了眼精,恐怕連嗅覺也失去了啊!」
